The Centre is committed to producing research of the very highest standard. Our academic expertise covers various aspects of public international law, including international criminal law, international human rights law, the law on peace and security, international institutional law, and the law on sustainable development. The Leiden Journal of International Law, one of Europe’s leading journals in the field, is published in association with the Grotius Centre. We believe it is crucial to maintain a dialogue between research and practice, which is reflected in the close ties we have to institutions situated in The Hague such as the International Criminal Court, the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, the International Court of Justice, and the Permanent Court of Arbitration.
